16. Ethnographic Authority

For The History of Anthro Thought after starting the section “On Social Position and Ethnographic Authority,” we finished the section with two articles:

  • Heike Becker, Emile Boonzaier, & Joy Owen, “Fieldwork in Shared Spaces: Positionality, Power and Ethics of Citizen Anthropologists in Southern Africa” (2005)
  • Bernard Perley, “‘Gone Anthropologist’: Epistemic Slippage, Native Anthropology, and the Dilemmas of Representation” (2013)

Next: 17. Beyond Culture

Living Anthropologically means documenting history, interconnection, and power during a time of global transformation. We need to care for others as we attempt to build a world together. This blog is a personal project of Jason Antrosio, author of Fast, Easy, and In Cash: Artisan Hardship and Hope in the Global Economy.
